MS Dhoni has to bide his time during transition phase: Sourav Ganguly

"Captains are always criticised. Even in my time, despite having players' like Tendulkar, Dravid and Laxman, the team took time to settle down. You have to be patient," Ganguly, who had taken over the captaincy from Tendulkar in a difficult phase in early 2000, said.

Kolkata: Under-fire Indian skipper M S Dhoni on Sunday got a bit of backing from former captain Sourav Ganguly who said the team has to cope up with this transition phase.

Responding to the widespread criticism for Team India's repeated below-par performance, Ganguly said,"It comes in every captain's tenure. MS has to bide his time."

"It's easy to comment from outside. You have to give the newcomers some time to settle down. Hopefully, they will do well in couple of years' time," he said.
